Orangutan Mom Can't Get Enough of Newborn Baby at Oregon Zoo

The Oregon Zoo in Portland said they welcomed a newborn orangutan into their primate family on Wednesday, April 13.

The baby and its mother, a 20-year-old Bornean orangutan named Kitra, were reportedly “doing well” and bonding in their behind-the-scenes maternity den, the zoo reported.
